Cobra turns a modern look at classic side-scrolling action games

I’m excited to be working on a space-based video game that originated in The Karate Kid. As a kid born in the 80’s, you can imagine how many times you tried to land the perfect crane kick on almost any target, from empty cans to tennis balls. One day, when I was seven as a goalkeeper in a school soccer game, I remember saving a literally clumsy shot, but it’s a crane kick enough to show off to my friends.

When I got the chance to market the Cobra Kai game concept to GameMill Entertainment, I wasn’t actually watching the show (the show hadn’t found a way to Netflix yet). After watching episodes 1 and 2, I decided to enter the Karate Kid’s headspace. Twenty hours later, I binged both seasons and wrote mechanics and ideas everywhere in a 100-page slideshow. As soon as Johnny called Miguel “menudo” in the first few minutes of the first episode, I became an enthusiastic fan. At this point, the team and I have seen the series many times and have incorporated as many series into the game as possible. As a result, there are characters that rarely appear in the series, and the screen time of the game is longer.To be honest, I Almost It’s a bit sad to be able to know in advance what’s going to happen in Season 3 as a result of working with the show’s creators on this game.

It also helps you to love this genre here at Flux. At the age of nine, I was sneaking out of the room at 5 am and playing. Angry Street In the living room, I just go back to bed before 6:30 am when my unsuspecting mom wakes me up. Of course, that window doesn’t count towards my daily video game time allocation. If you are reading this-sorry, mom.

There are two campaigns in this game, Cobra Kai and Miyagi-do.

I also wanted the game to feel faster.We love arcades and the 16-bit era, but we feel those games are slow by today’s standards, so we went to the pace of fighting games like this: Street Fighter.. As such, the game has an unexpected amount of unique attacks and combos to explore in the fighting game genre. The character is designed as a fighting game character.
